This weekend, LAND is hosting a jam-packed two-day celebration of its large-scale exhibition Nothing Beside Remains, with performances and programming by the exhibiting artists, selected screenings, guided tours of the exhibition (on a school bus), and about 1000 receptions

The opening night party is tonight at Padre’s here in Marfa, with a special performance by The Finches (Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs’s band, who’s the wife of participating artist Ry Rocklen)

We’re interested in everything, but particularly Ry Rocklen’s work, Sue de Beer’s multimedia project, and Rob Fischer’s installation (sidenote: Fischer is also the Chinati Foundation’s final artist-in-residence of 2011)

There are also screenings of Paths of Glory and Crimes and Misdemeanors and You’re Gonna Miss Me (the Roky Erickson documentary we screened in 2006), brunches, coffees, readings, and more
